Can anyone name these flats...Stewart Terrace?

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Thursday, June 1, 1961


Hi Mike,

You're right, it is Stewart Terrace. I've flipped the photo horizontally to get them facing the right way. Here's a very similar view taken when the original Stewart Terrace was still standing:

I've deleted one photo you've posted labelled "Sai Kung". It's a duplicate of this one you'd posted earlier:

I'm enjoying looking through this latest batch of photos, thanks very much for scanning & posting them. It's definitely indoors work - does it mean that the UK's good summer weather has come to an end?

Regards, David

David,thanks for removing the duplicate,I realised afterwards that it was a repeat.The mud slides could well be Dumbarton Rd but im not sure..can't remember that far back!I will check on more names for the Castle Peak beaches as Martin is over here on hols and he mentioned other beaches when seeing the photo.Yes,it was chucking down with rain,so i got the scanner out.

Regards Mike

I think these flats are La Hacienda which you reached by turning left down the steep drive ust past Peak Pavillions on Mt Kellett Road.

I think this photo is much earlier than 1961 as it does not show Dodwell Mansions which was constructed at the bottom of Stewart Terrace in 1951.

Hi Jenny, we've got a photo of La Hacienda at which shows it was around 9 storeys high - a much taller building than the one in this photo.
